The title is a separate paragraph from the body. The body can consist of a
couple of lines separated by a newline; each line is a separate paragraph.

If you are wondering why someone would want to have the title in one
language and the body in another, or one line of the body in one language
and another in another, it is not difficult to find examples. For example,
if the notification is about a talk being given by a visiting professor,
one might have the title be the name of the talk, in the language in which
it is being delivered, and the body be a blurb in the audience's native
language about the professor and why the talk is important.

Or, one might want the title to be in the audience's language, while the
body consists of two lines, where the first is the title of the talk in the
language it is being delivered, and the second is the address or room name
(in the audience's language) where it is being delivered.
